New at Zibbet

When Etsy recently announced they were going to start allowing factory made items, I panicked a little right along with most other sellers.  After I calmed down a bit and came back to the Land of the Rational, I realized it was best to give it some time and see what happened.  So I plan to hang in there on Etsy, work hard and hope for the best.  However, in this whole process, I learned about another marketplace and decided I’d try it out too.  It’s called Zibbet, and so far I like what I see.

I started out by moving my Ninja Monkey Bags there.  After that, I added a few coffee cup sleeves.  It’s starting out slow, but I like having somewhere I can branch out from the photography accessories I’ve been making for the last couple of years.

Yesterday, I added something new.  I’ve partnered with my talented husband to make Mason Drinking Jars!  They’re so cute.  If you’re a fan of those little canning jars like I am, add these to your Christmas list.

They come in blue and clear, pint and 20 ounce and singles or sets.

Next week we’ll be adding handmade stainless steel straws.  After that, we’re planning mason jar soap dispensers, leather mason jar lid coasters and mason jar cozies.  But right now, this is my very favorite thing to drink from.  There’s nothing like a metal straw to keep your drink cold.

Crafty Staci Newsletter

Just in case you haven’t gotten enough of me yet, I’m about to launch a newsletter.  I have a lot to say, and apparently it can’t be contained in a blog, various social media outlets, two shops and the ear of a husband you’re probably feeling a tiny bit sorry for right now. The newsletter will focus on my Etsy and Zibbet shops.  I’ll use it to announce new products, fabrics or variations on existing products.  But the most exciting thing you’ll find in my new newsletter is SALES!  Click the big box below and it will take you right to the sign-up page.

Newsletter sign up

I’ll be publishing via email, fewer than six times per year (probably 3 –4), usually in advance of a sale or holiday.  Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and I will be having a Black Friday weekend sale, so my first edition will be out that week.  All of my in-stock products will be on sale, but subscribers of my newsletter and blog readers will receive an extra coupon code, totaling the largest holiday discount I’ve ever offered.  If you’re interested in following what’s happening in my shops (did I mention the SALES?), just sign up and watch your inbox!
